SA MGA BABAE, TAKE TIME TO READ. FOR GUYS HOPE YOU READ THIS TOO. :)

Ang galing ng lalaking nagsulat nito:

“Ang mga babae, madaldal/mabunganga.” Oo, wala talagang tigil ang bibig nila sa pag-rachada sa kakasalita. Lalo na sa tuwing pinapaalala nila sayo na oras na para inumin ang iyong gamot, kapag nagtatanung sila kung kumain ka na ba, kapag ginising ka nila sa umaga upang hindi ma-late at sa mga pagkakataon na nag-aalala sila sayo at tinatanung kung nasaan ka na at bakit hindi ka pa umuuwi. Walang duda, madaldal nga. Hayaan mo na, balang araw, siguro magbabago din sila. Tipong maririnig mo lang ee “Oo”, “Hinde” at “Pwede”. Para kayong naglalaro ng Pinoy Henyo. Romantic siguro ng buhay nyo nun. “Ang mga babae, mashadong sentimental.” Sinabi mo pa. Tandang tanda nga nila ang petsa at lugar kung saan kayo unang nag-date, isinulat niya din sa kanyang diary kung ano ang mga ginawa ninyo, nakatago at ingat na ingat siya sa mga larawan nyong dalawa, daig pa niya ang Smithsonian sa pag-aalaga ng mga iniregalo mo at kahit kailan hindi niya nalilimutan ang mga importanteng okasyon tulad ng anniversary, monthsary, weeksary o birthday mo. Nakaka-inis ba? Ok lang yan, malay mo next time, hindi na siya ganun. Tipong i-aasa na lang niya sa Facebook ang iyong kaarawan. Tapos tamang post na lang sa wall mo ng “hapi bday”. “Ang mga babae, emosyonal.” They cry about movies. They get teary with a romantic novel. They blush and gasp upon seeing a picture of a cute dog or a cuddly baby. Bakit ba ganun sila? Buti na lang tayo hindi. Kinikimkim lang naten lahat ng emosyon sa loob hanggang sa sumabog at atakihin sa puso o di naman kaya ee magpapakalasingtapos magwawala at maghahamon ng wrestling. Di ba mas logical un? Madalas pa mag-imagine na ikakasal kayo sa simbahan. Lagi nag a-iloveyou, imissyou, take care at mwah mwah sa text. Asar ka na ba at nacocornyhan? Ayos lang yan. Darating din siguro ang time na titigil siya at isesend ang mga un sa iba. Women are probably the greatest gift to men, from God, beside beer and sizzling sisig. At para sken, women deserve all advantages, lalo na sa pag-ibig. Sana lahat ng babae ay maging masaya ang lovelife. Sana, walang babaeng heart-broken, kasi, tayong mga lalake, we’re meant to pursue them and it’s okay if we fail from time to time. It’s the way nature intended it. Gaya ng isang leon sa usa o pag-ikot ng earth sa paligid ng araw. Mas okay kung tayo na lang ung masasaktan. Ee sila? Isipin mo, nagkakaroon sila ng “dalaw” at nababaliw kada buwan, nabubuntis at nahihirapan ng 9 months, at pinaka matindi sa lahat, kailangan pa nilang panatilihing makinis at walang buhok ang kanilang mga kili-kili. Ano ba namang pasayahin sila at gawing “scar-free” ang kanilang buhay pag-ibig. And if you are with a great gal, do everything to make her happy. Don’t ever break her heart. Wag kang magpa-uto sa mga statistics, na nagsasabing, mas marami ang babae sa lalake, kaya okay lang mang-chiks. Ano pa bang gusto mo? Hindi pa ba sapat na minahal ka niya sa kabila ng iyong pagiging engot at kawalan ng Romantic DNA sa katawan? Malaki man ang papolasyon nila sa mundo, napaka-liit ng tsansang makakilala ka ulet ng katulad niya na magtya-tyaga sayo. Tandaan, pansamantala ka mang maakit ng naglalakihang pulang high-heels o maaarteng makintab na sandals, mas masarap pa ring umuwe sa nag-iisang tsinelas ng buhay mo.” :))

A LETTER IN THE LOST WALLETAs I walked home one freezing day, I stumbled on a wallet someone had lost in the street. I picked it up and looked inside to find some identification soI could call the owner. But the wallet contained only three dollars and acrumpled letter that looked as if it had been in there for years.The envelope was worn and the only thing that was legible on it was thereturn address. I started to open the letter, hoping to find some clue. ThenI saw the dateline—1924. The letter had been written almost sixty years ago.It was written in a beautiful feminine handwriting on powder bluestationery with a little flower in the left-hand corner. It was a “Dear John”letter that told the recipient, whose name appeared to be Michael, that thewriter could not see him any more because her mother forbade it. Even so, shewrote that she would always love him.It was signed, Hannah.It was a beautiful letter, but there was no way except for the nameMichael, that the owner could be identified. Maybe if I called information,the operator could find a phone listing for the address on the envelope."Operator," I began, "this is an unusual request. I’m trying to find theowner of a wallet that I found. Is there anyway you can tell me if there is aphone number for an address that was on an envelope in the wallet?”She suggested I speak with her supervisor, who hesitated for a moment then said, “Well, there is a phone listing at that address, but I can’t give youthe number.” She said, as a courtesy, she would call that number, explain mystory and would ask them if they wanted her to connect me. I waited a fewminutes and then she was back on the line. “I have a party who will speakwith you.”I asked the woman on the other end of the line if she knew anyone by thename of Hannah. She gasped, “Oh! We bought this house from a family who had a daughter named Hannah. But that was 30 years ago!”"Would you know where that family could be located now?" I asked."I remember that Hannah had to place her mother in a nursing home someyears ago,” the woman said. “Maybe if you got in touch with them they might be able to track down the daughter.”She gave me the name of the nursing home and I called the number. They told me the old lady had passed away some years ago but they did have a phone number for where they thought the daughter might be living.I thanked them and phoned. The woman who answered explained that Hannah herself was now living in a nursing home.This whole thing was stupid, I thought to myself. Why was I making such abig deal over finding the owner of a wallet that had only three dollars and aletter that was almost 60 years old?Nevertheless, I called the nursing home in which Hannah was supposed to be living and the man who answered the phone told me, “Yes, Hannah is staying with us. “Even though it was already 10 p.m., I asked if I could come by to see her."Well," he said hesitatingly, "if you want to take a chance, she might be inthe day room watching television.”I thanked him and drove over to the nursing home. The night nurse and aguard greeted me at the door. We went up to the third floor of the largebuilding. In the day room, the nurse introduced me to Hannah.She was a sweet, silver-haired old timer with a warm smile and a twinkle inher eye.I told her about finding the wallet and showed her the letter. The secondshe saw the powder blue envelope with that little flower on the left, she tooka deep breath and said, “Young man, this letter was the last contact I everhad with Michael.”She looked away for a moment deep in thought and then said Softly, “I lovedhim very much. But I was only 16 at the time and my mother felt I was tooyoung. Oh, he was so handsome. He looked like Sean Connery, the actor.”"Yes," she continued. "Michael Goldstein was a wonderful person. If youshould find him, tell him I think of him often. And,” she hesitated for amoment, almost biting her lip, “tell him I still love him. You know,” she saidsmiling as tears began to well up in her eyes, “I never did marry. I guess noone ever matched up to Michael…”I thanked Hannah and said goodbye. I took the elevator to the first floorand as I stood by the door, the guard there asked, “Was the old lady able tohelp you?”I told him she had given me a lead. “At least I have a last name. But Ithink I’ll let it go for a while. I spent almost the whole day trying to findthe owner of this wallet.”I had taken out the wallet, which was a simple brown leather case with redlacing on the side. When the guard saw it, he said, “Hey, wait a minute!That’s Mr. Goldstein’s wallet. I’d know it anywhere with that bright redlacing. He’s always losing that wallet. I must have found it in the halls atleast three times.”"Who’s Mr. Goldstein?" I asked as my hand began to shake."He’s one of the old timers on the 8th floor. That’s Mike Goldstein’swallet for sure. He must have lost it on one of his walks.”I thanked the guard and quickly ran back to the nurse’s office. I told herwhat the guard had said. We went back to the elevator and got on. I prayedthat Mr. Goldstein would be up.On the eighth floor, the floor nurse said, “I think he’s still in the dayroom. He likes to read at night. He’s a darling old man.”We went to the only room that had any lights on and there was a man reading a book. The nurse went over to him and asked if he had lost his wallet. Mr. Goldstein looked up with surprise, put his hand in his back pocket and said, “Oh, it is missing!”"This kind gentleman found a wallet and we wondered if it could be yours?"I handed Mr. Goldstein the wallet and the second he saw it, he smiled withrelief and said, “Yes, that’s it! It must have dropped out of my pocket thisafternoon. I want to give you a reward.”"No, thank you," I said. "But I have to tell you something. I read theletter in the hope of finding out who owned the wallet.”The smile on his face suddenly disappeared. “You read that letter?”"Not only did I read it, I think I know where Hannah is."He suddenly grew pale. “Hannah? You know where she is? How is she? Is she still as pretty as she was? Please, please tell me,” he begged."She’s fine…just as pretty as when you knew her." I said softly.The old man smiled with anticipation and asked, “Could you tell me whereshe is? I want to call her tomorrow.” He grabbed my hand and said, “You know something, mister, I was so in love with that girl that when that letter came, my life literally ended. I never married. I guess I’ve always loved her. “"Mr. Goldstein," I said, "Come with me."We took the elevator down to the third floor. The hallways were darkenedand only one or two little night-lights lit our way to the day room whereHannah was sitting alone watching the television. The nurse walked over toher."Hannah," she said softly, pointing to Michael, who was waiting with me inthe doorway. “Do you know this man?”She adjusted her glasses, looked for a moment, but didn’t say a word.Michael said softly, almost in a whisper, “Hannah, it’s Michael. Do youremember me?”She gasped, “Michael! I don’t believe it! Michael! It’s you! My Michael!”He walked slowly towards her and they embraced. The nurse and I left withtears streaming down our faces."See," I said. "See how the Good Lord works! If it’s meant to be, it willbe.”About three weeks later I got a call at my office from the nursing home."Can you break away on Sunday to attend a wedding? Michael and Hannah are going to tie the knot!"It was a beautiful wedding with all the people at the nursing home dressedup to join in the celebration. Hannah wore a light beige dress and lookedbeautiful. Michael wore a dark blue suit and stood tall. They made me theirbest man.The hospital gave them their own room and if you ever wanted to see a76-year-old bride and a 79-year-old groom acting like two teenagers, you hadto see this couple.A perfect ending for a love affair that had lasted nearly 60 years.

A LETTER IN THE LOST WALLET

As I walked home one freezing day, I stumbled on a wallet someone had lost in the street. I picked it up and looked inside to find some identification so
I could call the owner. But the wallet contained only three dollars and a
crumpled letter that looked as if it had been in there for years.

The envelope was worn and the only thing that was legible on it was the
return address. I started to open the letter, hoping to find some clue. Then
I saw the dateline—1924. The letter had been written almost sixty years ago.

It was written in a beautiful feminine handwriting on powder blue
stationery with a little flower in the left-hand corner. It was a “Dear John”
letter that told the recipient, whose name appeared to be Michael, that the
writer could not see him any more because her mother forbade it. Even so, she
wrote that she would always love him.

It was signed, Hannah.

It was a beautiful letter, but there was no way except for the name
Michael, that the owner could be identified. Maybe if I called information,
the operator could find a phone listing for the address on the envelope.

"Operator," I began, "this is an unusual request. I’m trying to find the
owner of a wallet that I found. Is there anyway you can tell me if there is a
phone number for an address that was on an envelope in the wallet?”

She suggested I speak with her supervisor, who hesitated for a moment then said, “Well, there is a phone listing at that address, but I can’t give you
the number.” She said, as a courtesy, she would call that number, explain my
story and would ask them if they wanted her to connect me. I waited a few
minutes and then she was back on the line. “I have a party who will speak
with you.”

I asked the woman on the other end of the line if she knew anyone by the
name of Hannah. She gasped, “Oh! We bought this house from a family who had a daughter named Hannah. But that was 30 years ago!”

"Would you know where that family could be located now?" I asked.

"I remember that Hannah had to place her mother in a nursing home some

She gave me the name of the nursing home and I called the number. They told me the old lady had passed away some years ago but they did have a phone number for where they thought the daughter might be living.

I thanked them and phoned. The woman who answered explained that Hannah herself was now living in a nursing home.

This whole thing was stupid, I thought to myself. Why was I making such a

Nevertheless, I called the nursing home in which Hannah was supposed to be living and the man who answered the phone told me, “Yes, Hannah is staying with us. “

Even though it was already 10 p.m., I asked if I could come by to see her.
"Well," he said hesitatingly, "if you want to take a chance, she might be in
the day room watching television.”

I thanked him and drove over to the nursing home. The night nurse and a
guard greeted me at the door. We went up to the third floor of the large
building. In the day room, the nurse introduced me to Hannah.

She was a sweet, silver-haired old timer with a warm smile and a twinkle in
her eye.

I told her about finding the wallet and showed her the letter. The second
she saw the powder blue envelope with that little flower on the left, she took
a deep breath and said, “Young man, this letter was the last contact I ever

I had taken out the wallet, which was a simple brown leather case with red

That’s Mr. Goldstein’s wallet. I’d know it anywhere with that bright red
lacing. He’s always losing that wallet. I must have found it in the halls at

"Who’s Mr. Goldstein?" I asked as my hand began to shake.

"Mr. Goldstein," I said, "Come with me."

We took the elevator down to the third floor. The hallways were darkened
and only one or two little night-lights lit our way to the day room where
Hannah was sitting alone watching the television. The nurse walked over to
her.

"Hannah," she said softly, pointing to Michael, who was waiting with me in

Michael said softly, almost in a whisper, “Hannah, it’s Michael. Do you

She gasped, “Michael! I don’t believe it! Michael! It’s you! My Michael!”
He walked slowly towards her and they embraced. The nurse and I left with
tears streaming down our faces.

"See," I said. "See how the Good Lord works! If it’s meant to be, it will
be.”

About three weeks later I got a call at my office from the nursing home.
"Can you break away on Sunday to attend a wedding? Michael and Hannah are going to tie the knot!"

It was a beautiful wedding with all the people at the nursing home dressed
up to join in the celebration. Hannah wore a light beige dress and looked
beautiful. Michael wore a dark blue suit and stood tall. They made me their
best man.

The hospital gave them their own room and if you ever wanted to see a
76-year-old bride and a 79-year-old groom acting like two teenagers, you had
to see this couple.

A perfect ending for a love affair that had lasted nearly 60 years.
